    I worked at Unify full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefits and compensation package. Good co-worker and management structure

    Cons

    Company seemed to large at times with conflicting objectives. Too much work for too few employees but yet they keep reducing the workforce. Too much turnover in the executive levels.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more in touch with the lower levels of the organization. Reward outstanding contributions.

    Pros

    The company is always in crisis mode. The value in crisis situations is you learn to think fast and you get to develop and use skills you probably never knew you had. Additionally, you do not have to wait for seniority or years in your career to work on high visibility and critical projects and assignments. If you are good, you will be put to use, excessively.

    Cons

    Owned by a private equity firm means the company is always being primed to sell. There is always a "restructure" to cut costs and look good on the books. It's quickest way to cut costs is to cut human capital. Perpetual lay offs. Hard to get any traction on any programs or projects. Revolving door management. Employees are incidental in this climate. Cash rules.

    Pros

    People are the key assets, although they are leaving in droves given the lack of management stability and tools to perform their jobs.

    Cons

    Perpetual change of management- every 3-6 months a new sales leader comes in and changes direction. Too much conflict between channel and direct sales teams. Poor tools for employees to do their jobs. Products don't meet US market requirements.

    I have been working at Unify full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Main pro is the Job satisfaction. Lots of diverse software development and the ability to move between different technical areas.

    Cons

    Main con is the continuos lay-offs that have been happening over the last 10 years. Also the company has continually reduced the employee benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Mainly at high level management but loyalty seems to not be part of the companies busy plan, just the bottom line. Continually laying off and hire in low cost countries means the product quality has deteriorated over a number of years.
